Default Meet My New Boy!

Well, I'm going to add him to my little flock of three when the time comes, but in the meantime, here are pictures of him in the travel cage he came home in.

His color appears to be a very light greyish sage green - very different from anything I'd seen before. Greywing?

I'm guessing he is 4 to 5 months of age. What do you think?

I'm done, now. I have two English budgies, and four regular budgies.

Very nice coloring. Love to see all the new birds. Since I have four of my own, I can't be adding anymore, but I can dream!

His name is Mycroft Holmes - Sherlock's brother. My little flock members are Sherlock, Watson, Lastrade, and Mycroft.

My English budgies are Castle and Kate.

He looks pretty good. Nice face and expression. Also, the grey color looks good on him. He is young also, long life ahead of him. You have a nice bird.
